I really wanted to do an animation of one of my all-time favourites, Maya Angelou.
Here are a few of my favourite verses of this poem, on a regular Thursday because this is true and you deserve it 🌸💛
'Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.'
'...You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.'
Ps.1 Hearing this poem at the Women's March, among 300k allies was prob one of the most inspiring and empowering moments of my life.
Ps.2 Also, I don't think I've ever been able to read/hear the full poem without getting something in my eye 😭
